I'm still new to the cake decorating world and I'm going to make a millenium falcon (star wars ship) cake for my sons 4th b-day. I've done a little research and learned that it has to be a dense cake to carve and having it slightly frozen helps. But was wondering if there is a box mix I can use or a way to make a box mix more dense.?

I just found the durable cake recipe on CC and lucky me it uses a mix.
Any other tips on carving a cake would be apreciated tho.

My *original* WASC recipe is perfect for carving icon_smile.gif
Work with a COLD cake - but not frozen.

You can also use a regular box mix and substitute the water for milk and the oil for butter.

I have also made a soda cake, substitute all the liquid ingredients for a can of soda. Sprite does not affect the taste of the cake, but you can do any combination of soda and cake flavor.
